Jim Youel      Iowa Wikipedia 

Jim Youel attended Fort Madison High School in Fort Madison, Iowa. He signed with Iowa as a quarterback and punter. In 1942, he helped the Hawkeyes stall the previously unbeaten Wisconsin 6-0. He had four punts of 50+ yards in the low scoring game.

He was chosen to play in the Chicago College All-Star Game, defeating the Washington Redskins 27-7. After his military service, he was signed by the Cleveland Rams in January 1945, and was a backup QB for the Redskins in 1946 and 1947.

After retiring from the NFL, he became a math teacher and football coach for his alma mater, Fort Madison High School. In 2008 Fort Madison renamed their football field "Jim Youel Field" in his honor. He was later named to the Iowa Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

Born 2/13/1922 and died on 4/9/2020 at the age of 98.
